What's holding them back?The answer is a scarcity of capital due to poverty.
I, Arti Verma, would like to tell you about their story. The story of unfulfilled dreams,
hardships, and perseverance. I'm a photographer by profession but a social worker by
preference. , I spend a few hours per week with these kids. Since its inception, we've been
working on a project called 'DRISHTI'. The very idea of Project Drishti started from a single
room in 2014 where we dreamt of providing the most important tool to strengthen the roots
of children i.e., ‘ Education’.
Working day and night tirelessly on the same initiative, our team brought it into effect
in 2016 with great impact. With the need of the current times, we are working towards
introducing measures to shift our initiative to something that can be accessed via the internet.
Through the means of “ GADGETSHALA ”, we intend to shift to a mode of online learning,
accessible through gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. Furthermore, we have
distributed textbooks, notebooks, and other stationery essentials, doing our best to ensure all
have accessibility to elementary levels of education. With online lectures and online sessions,
we have the plan to move towards an online accessible environment. In conclusion to the
same we are of the idea that from the beginning till now, our team is able to educate and
make more than 11215 children’s future bright.
IMPACT WE ARE PLANNING
We used to teach hundreds of students on a regular basis. Since March 2021 the problem
related to child’s education is increasing. Underprivileged students are not able to attend their
online classes. There are no proper facilities for the same. Now we have come forward with
an urgent need for action because those students can’t afford more loss to their academics.
Looking forward to making the facility of internet and virtual education available to every
child residing in slum areas or being deprived of basic education.
We have enabled a few areas with internet facilities. Our plan of action is to establish
1. Internet facilities
2. Smart gadgets like mobile phones, laptops, and computers.
3. A mobile van to make this “ GADGETSHALA” accessible in various areas.
4. Your valuable time to teach these children.
1 Laptop costs around Rs. 25,000.
1 Tablet costs around Rs. 10,000.
1 Computer costs around Rs. 25000
1 Mobile Van costs around Rs. 5,00,000
We are aiming to provide a full library to these students equipped with gadgets.
basic education and knowledge of oneself and society. We hope to maintain and broaden the
scope of this belief through this project. We might not be able to sponsor a student's phone or
laptop on our own, but even if each of us contributes a small amount of Rs.1000 or Rs.500,
100. We can help these students achieve educational stability. With your support, these
students will be able to attend classes on a regular basis and will be prepared to take
responsibility for a more educated India.
By doing our part, we are not only assisting a student in obtaining an education, but we are
also encouraging and contributing to our country's bright future.
